Huston-Tillotson University Reviews
So far, my experience here at Huston-Tillotson University has been absolutely great! I came here in August of 2016, and ever since then, I've gotten the chance to meet new people, travel may different places, and make a multitude of connections with the skills of networking, given by those in authority. Also, this is the only HBCU in Austin, TX and the oldest education system of higher learning. And let's not forget that this school is placed right on Bluebonnet Hill, which is even better. If you are interested in come here, please do! we are a FRAMily, so come and make HT your home!
It’s been more than 10 years since I have attended college! Being a part of Huston-Tillotson University Adult Degree Program has been like home away from home. The Education curriculum is, by far, the best I have come across and there is always someone willing to help you, if you’re willing to reach out!
This is a wonderful institution! It is very diverse and there are many opportunities for students to take advantage of from studying in China, to being an intern at the Google Headquarters. The campus is very family-oriented and I would recommend this school to anyone! The issues that are on campus are minor technical issues so overall, this school if amazing!
